Ochocinco Finds Pay Dirt Riding the Bulls!





Chad Ochocinco of Cincinnati Bengals rides bull for 1.5 seconds, gets $10K - ESPN

DULUTH, Ga. -- NFL receiver Chad Ochocinco backed up his promise to ride a 1,500-pound bull on the Professional Bull Riders circuit Saturday night, earning $10,000 for making it out of the chute atop Deja Blu.

The ride lasted 1.5 seconds before Ochocinco was bucked off with no apparent injury.

Ochocinco, who wore a helmet and a standard protective vest, fell 6.5 seconds short of the time needed to win a new Ford truck and to earn the right to rename the bull after Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis.

Quote
I'm sure my coach was probably [upset], I mean, I would be, too. I'm sure the NFL is [upset], but I don't follow their rules anyway.

But the challenge that began with a tweet earlier this month ended with Ochocinco proving PBR president Sean Gleason that he was serious. The six-time Pro Bowl receiver said, however, that he would never ride a bull again.

"One and done," he said.

The publicity stunt was the latest for Ochocinco, whose Twitter account has nearly 2 million followers.

Ochocinco said he did not speak with Cincinnati coaches when the NFL lockout was briefly lifted in late April. He is under contract with the Bengals but is likely either to be released or told to take a hefty pay cut now that Cincinnati has drafted A.J. Green.
Ochocinco acknowledged that the Bengals probably weren't pleased that he was risking a career-threatening injury.

I wish I had the talent and the opportunity that these guys have, making millions of dollars doing what they do. I sure wouldn't risk throwing it all away for some dumbass stunt like that. Some of these guys are just plain stupid. Sorry, but that has to be it. Just plain stupid. He has the rest of his life after he retires to do dumb stuff like that. Why in the hell would you risk your career like that? I just don't get it. He earned $10,000 riding that bull? I think the NFL should fine him $10,000. He must have broken league policy, or broken an agreement in his contract, or something. Fine him $10,000 just to make a point....What a dumbass!
